I am a 24 year old female. What could be the cause of a severe stomach pain that happens after eating nuts, seeds, and things with oil in them?
By oil, I mean even olive oil and not just greasy foods. This reaction has been happening for a year or so, and I have avoided these foods as a result.
I recently had rice with olive oil, and within five minutes, my stomach hurt so bad that it felt like the beginning or middle stages of labor.
I have taken a Pepcid, and it did nothing. I do not have any diarrhea or vomiting, just severe pain, and stomach cramps.
Welcome to icliniq.com.
Severe stomach pain and cramps can be caused by pancreatitis and food allergy. In your case, both are equally probable. Pancreatitis is a common cause of pain that occurs after the intake of oil-rich foods. Food allergy is a diagnosis of exclusion.
I suggest the following investigations be done:
Avoid all the precipitating agents. Further management methods can be decided after the investigations are done. Revert with the reports.
